Step Up's career-guidance guru

The work of Step Up would not be possible without a dedicated team of staff and volunteers — from teachers and sports coaches to photographers and managers. Andrei is one of the psychologists working at Step Up. He and his wife, Yekaterina, are particularly involved in Step Up’s work placement schemes and career-guidance programs that help introduce our students to the world of work, and aid them in their search for the professions that they want to pursue. We asked Andrei a couple of questions

Why do Step Up students need career-guidance?

If you start talking to the younger groups about 80 percent of the boys say that they want to be programmers even though they don’t understand what that really means. In class, we provide consultations and help the students understand themselves. Where do they want to end up, what direction do they need to be moving in? We try and cover all the necessary topics, while also focusing on the needs of each individual group. We try and make sure that the students can make a conscious choice about what to aim for — and what profession to choose — when they graduate.

Why are you a part of this project?

I am at the sort of age when I don’t just want to live for myself — but to give something back. I’ve got very varied experience, in both life and work. The students are always surprised to discover that I was a doctor, and also worked as a street cleaner and window-washer. They listen to my stories carefully, and draw conclusions for themselves.
